Looking back : four plays
"Reflections on suicide, child abuse, depression and murder"--cover p.1.; The four plays in this collection were all written after Judith Weinshall Liberman reached her eighties. One play, Empathy, was inspired by a period in the playwright's life, when her husband, then only 52, suffered a stroke which rendered him unable to play the piano and led to his severe depression. The other three plays - Good old Abraham, Michal and Sisera's mother - were inspired by Old Testament stories which the playwright studied in elementary school in her native Israel but upon which she bestows, in her plays, a mature perspective that raises questions relevant to our times.
